Lounge for a meetup?

Is there a quiet bar or lounge in DC where I could meet with some business colleagues and share some mixed drinks on a Friday evening? Coming in from Arlington so we can take a cab to any part of the city.

    I feel like any bar on Friday is going to be loudish just because it's a Friday in a major city. But! Here are some of my favorites Founding Farmers is amazing. They have prohibition style cocktails so everything is made in house. Also, they have an extensive drink menu but if you don't see a thing you like choose dealers choice and they will craft something specially for you :) I also really like Lyon Hall in Clarendon VA or EatBar in the same area. Both have great happy hours. Eat bar will probably be a lot quieter than the others but all are good choices.

      Yeah, I am disappointed that I'll be there on a super busy night, but Founding Farmers sounds great. Do you think I'll be able to sit with 3 others? · (0 likelikes)

      Annemarie I think you will the bar seating is first come first serve unless you make a reservation. But if you go earlier in the evening you should be good. I just went to this place NoPa in DC tonight. Food was great and they have a good quiet bar scene so it might be somewhere else to try. · (1 likelikes)

    My go-to place in DC is Bar Dupont in the The Dupont Circle Hotel It is just on the north end of the circle and has large floor to ceiling windows that. The atmosphere is quiet enough for a conversation, but not so quiet that you feel that you are in a library.

    Another great place to take business contacts is P.O.V. Roof Terrace and Lounge on the roof of the W Washington DC , which has a great view of the white house and the signature Strawberry Lemonade.

    If you are looking for good cocktails, try Lincoln at Thomas Circle, which has the floor tiled in pennies and serves drinks in Mason Jars. Thomas Circle is the starting point of the 14th Street Corridor and there a ton of great restaurants and bars on 14th Street between N and U Streets. One of my favorite places for cocktails is Pearl Dive Oyster Palace and their upstairs bar Black Jack .

    You could check out 1905 Restaurant 1905's bar. It'll be pretty quiet and laid back and their bar tender is awesome. http://www.1905dc.com/

    I would also recommend the Tabard Inn . They'll have a fireplace going this time of year and it is really cozy. http://www.tabardinn.com/

    In addition to all the great places that have been recommended, I would add Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar. They have a nice upstairs lounge area for happy hour. If you are in the mood for strong vodka drinks, then check out Russia House.
